Five Top Destinations to Travel Around the World

January 14th, 2014 9:16 am

Many of the top travel destinations are beach getaways, with Caribbean islands making several cameos on the list. One might imagine the Seychelles serves as the island-of-choice for those in Asia or Africa. Of course, classic European mainstays Rome and London are favorites, as well.

The full list of global travel destinations most-searched by people in the U.S. is below.

1. Hawaii

It’s not surprising to see Hawaii in the top spot — the islands are tourist-friendly with everything from nightlife to hiking to surfing. The Honolulu marathon is in December and Ironman in October, drawing athletes to the islands, but for hobbyists the island have kayaking, hiking and other water sports to offer.

2. Bahamas

The most popular of Caribbean destinations, the Bahamas include about 2,000 islands, including San Salvador, where Christopher Columbus landed in 1492. Junkanoo is a local celebration not to be missed — there are costumes, cowbells and conch-shell horns — and parades take place on Boxing Day and on New Year’s Day.

3. London

London was the top choice of European destinations, perhaps due in part to hosting the 2012 Summer Olympics. Spring and Fall offer the best weather, but London is magical during the Christmas and New Year’s season with lots of celebrations going on — it depends on whether your plans include museums and operas, or enjoying London’s parks and visiting historic sites.

4. Istanbul

On the edge of both Europe and Asia, Istanbul’s urban locale is a melting pot, featuring world-class shopping, restaurants, landmarks and nightlife. The Hagia Sofia is a favorite — it was the world’s largest cathedral for almost a thousand years, and is now a museum.

5. Puerto Rico

A U.S. territory, Puerto Rico is easily accessible for US citizens as it doesn’t require a passport. Some call it “the beach of the Northeast” because of the plethora of tourists who come down to catch some sun. The busy season runs from November through April.

Children Healthy Lifestyles

July 13th, 2012 12:08 pm

Children are precious. They are the leaders, builders and hope for the future. For that reason, we need to ensure that they have healthy lifestyles. One way to achieve it is to take good care of what children eat for the sake of their physical health. Children need to eat their main meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner at the right time. The meals are to be balanced in portions of carbohydrate, protein, fat and vitamins. Other than that, they also should be served healthy snacks in between main meals. For example: yoghurt, milk, biscuits, fruits, raisins, nuts, etc. We could also give vitamins and other supplements to them like vitamin C and cod liver oil. However these supplements should not be substituting real fruits and foods that are rich in vitamins. Another important thing is to encourage children to drink lots of water. Water is needed to keep the body hydrated and energized.

Another way to ensure children to have a healthy lifestyle is to let them have much fun and recreation. Children are active and needs an outlet for their energy. They could have much fun at parks, gardens, playgrounds or even around the home. At the same time they could have exercises at these places. They might also learn many new things while having recreation outside of classroom and home. Recreation not just contributes to their physical health but also emotional health.

Children deserve to have a life free from what troubles adults. Somehow these days there are many children coming from dysfunctional background or broken families. Although we could not eliminate these issues, there are ways to attain the children’s emotional health being. We could allow them to voice up on what they are going through and how they feel. They will feel loved and respected when others give them a listening ear. Adults could help much by letting children know that they could fail and be imperfect in life yet still have value. Children could lead a healthy emotionally lifestyle if most adults give them examples of good character.
